, a strongly libertarian ensemble, began its existence in a Geneva basement in Winter 2004. Adapting the improvised and experimental music languages of today, the duo is highly reactive, dynamic, percussive and/or textured. Initialy a trio, diatribes became a polymorphous formation, accuratly incomplete, extending each time its spectrum with guest musicians, from freejazz to electroacoustic improv, from loud sound wall to intimistic acoustic details, crossing the road of Barry Guy, Keith Rowe, Jason Kahn, Jacques Demierre, Christian Weber, Ernesto Rodriguez, Tomas Korber, Jean BordÃ¯Â¿Â½, Mick Beck, etc, travelling through europe to create new entities, with Adbul MoimÃ¯Â¿Â½me in Portugal, Hannah Marshall in England, Rafal Mazur in Poland or HKM+ in Germany.ABDUL MOIMEME
